I'd look more for rats and beavers if I were you. Don't trap over a pile though. Only hunt over it.

yes thats what i plan for is to hunt it. i have traped piles before but with only 1 fox and 1 coyote. i just want some carcasses to hunt over. why do u say use rats and beavers over coons? i would gladly use them too. but where could i get them. any fur buyers around that may have them?

You can go to your local taxidermist they usually have a dumpster they put carcasses in, but you gotta watch whats used for bait legally.

If the guy that is suppose to by my carcasses backs out on me you can have all you want. Have a freezer full of rats right now, but have to make a couple of phone calls before I let anything go. I'll get in touch if I can't sell them.

Whats Illegal?

The carcasses have to be from a fear bearing animal such as coon, mink, yote, rats, beaver, ermine, marten, etc. No deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, pheasant, pat, etc. Get the drift?

I had a hard time with that at first too.

what about pigeons are they illegal? Open season all year round. Plus they have one of the strongest sent on them of all game birds. Thats what the bird dog trainers told me when i sold them to them ..
